Add Megaupload

DARK CLOUD? Megaupload’s shutdown could have a chilling effect on the online storage business, the Journal notes. "This is really bad news for cloud storage industry going forward," said Julie Samuels, a staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. "I'm concerned about the users who had no due process, and no notice—and no access to their data." But Rapidshare spokesman Daniel Raimer disagreed. "The Megaupload raid and the arrests have nothing to do with the business model of file storage. They have everything to do with the alleged misconduct of individuals," he said. (1/15a)
